Feature #8593: Improve flexibility of output file handling
Implement condition-based output file rollover
Implement the following features:
- configure a maximum size for output files
- configure a maximum wall clock "age" for output files (where "age" is the amount of time that the file has been open)
See related issue #3189 for history and some detail.
#12 Updated by Kyle Knoepfel over 4 years ago
- Status changed from Assigned to Resolved
- % Done changed from 0 to 100
Output file rollover can now happen (implemented for art:version:"Arcturus") when a maximum output-file size has been reached. Switching to a new output file based on file age is a non-trivial problem and will not be released in art:version:"Arcturus"; a separate issue has been opened for that feature (#12566).
See placeholder documentation here.
Implemented with many commits. The first merge commit is art:97485ee2.
